In August 2003 when the University of Oregon football players returned to Eugene for fall camp, their practice gear was waiting in a newly revamped locker room - a $3.2 million facility to be exact. Each individual locker is equipped with an HVAC air-flow ventalation system to keep apparel and footwear dry. Each locker block comes Internet ready with ports available to the players to surf the web.
Not only are the players' lockers spacious, Internet friendly and fresher smelling, but the two-story facility boasts three 60" plasma panels that can be utilized for video or for a super-sized game of NCAA Football or Madden on X-box. There is also a multi-level lighting system, a Game Day look (a slide-up door to allow efficient entrance and exit on game day) and a central seating area that provides for "inner sanctum" gatherings or relaxing between workouts or meetings.
During halftime of Oregon football games, the locker room shows a live feed of the Autzen Stadium scoreboard and has a fight song playback on a world class sound system for audio/video, music and voice aplification.
